Re: Starting up

1) Skirmishers..any good...?? Are they a must in army? When used properly they can be helpful, but are not game winners in their own right. 2)After we tested cavalry, it seemed it didnt have the punch to break through closeorder ranks? How should it be used? They most probably will not break through...

Whilst we are all thinking about changes: Discouraged troops - should they be allowed to initiate a charge? Should discouraged troops have to pass a cohesion test to charge the front of a non-discouraged troops? Levy - never allowed to charge whilst discouraged, drilled allowed to charge without a c...

Re: Possible Rules Amendments

Martin my thoughts for what they are worth: Having brought a shed load of archers to maintain parity in the escalating firestorm, I would be happy to see players given a reason for not taking lots of archers. So penalties for purely bow armed troops is an intersting way to go. Wayne makes a number o...

Re: Cavaly Counter charges

So when charged by elephants cavlary take a terror test. If the fail they run away. If they pass they 'may evade' as per the rule book or chose to stand and take the charge.

Re: Meeting engagement

Levies and movement

Just want to check understanding of the resitrictions on the movement of troops with the 'Levies rule' Rule 1 - when attempting to move other than straight ahead, the movement of formed levy infantry is reduced by half. So if a unit of open order levy wants to go backwards do they: 1 About face, and...
